  • The Weather Network Tops Apple’s Top 25 All-Time Fr...
    By on March 3rd, 2012 | No Comments Comments
     

    Canadians love the weather and their number-one source for mobile forecasts is The Weather Network.

    Last week Apple announced the Top 25 All-Time most downloaded paid and free apps for iPhone and iPad as part of its “Countdown to 25 Billion Apps” promotion. According to the free-app list, The Weather Network mobile app landed the top spot for the iPad and in the Top 3 for iPhone.

    Being one of the first companies to break into the world of mobile applications four years ago, The Weather Network has seen incredible growth in its industry-leading app business with download numbers surpassing the 20 million mark and impressive ratings across all platforms.


     

    The newly launched Weather Network-branded app for iPhone boasts two million unique users and over 100 million page views, monthly. It was also recently upgraded to include enhanced ski reports, a fixed Trip Forecast date button, as well as improvements to the charts and maps performance.

    Averaging over 300 thousand unique visitors and nine million page views month-to-month, WeatherEye HD for iPad is now compatible and optimized for iOS 5. It also has improved satellite/radar maps usability and location search.

  • Rage for PC – texture flickering fix
    By on October 15th, 2011 | No Comments Comments


    I was so happy when I finally got to play Rage after all the wait. I got the PC version of it instead of for the console. As soon as I started the game I was greeted by a pretty good movie intro which got me even more hyped up. As soon as the movie ends the flickering appeared all over the place, it got even worse as soon as I stepped out of the waste land area. I was disappointed but was determined to find the fix for it. After I updated my ATI 5670HD video card driver the problem still persisted. I was so close to giving up when I stumbled upon this on Google – The RAGE Megathread, one of the users posted a “preview” version of the latest ATI driver. I downloaded it and gave it a try while telling myself this might not work either. After I restarted my computer as prompted. I started the game for the third or forth time, to my surprised it actually was working with absolutely no screen tearing or flickering at all. Thank you InnocentCriminal from that thread!

    Then again, shouldn’t this game be tested properly on PC before releasing? This is pretty bad, considering it was produced by Id Soft, the maker of the all time classic Doom? Oh the name of this game makes this whole situation ironic.

    This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Moviestorm. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Have you ever thought of creating your own movies? If you were to make a movie, what would you name it? What role will you take up? Who’ll be your partner? Which type of movie would you choose? Drama? Action? Comedy? With whom would you walk down on the red carpet? What’d be the name of the movie? Have you ever thought of these little funny things?

    If I were to make a movie, i’d take ‘MY LIFE’ as the plot. I would like Stephanie Edwards to play my mom part and I’d take up the role of Kenny Loggins, since i’ve heard friends saying that I look like him. I’d prefer Angelina Jolie as my sister and will walk down the red carpet with my family.

  • WinX DVD Author – DVD creation software review
    By on May 18th, 2009 | No Comments Comments

    I recently got my hands on a full version of a DVD creation software called WinX DVD Author by FreeTime Soft. A very neat and relatively small, about 35mb, program that converts most of the popular video formats into VOB format, the format that DVD uses. The demo, which limits you to only 5 minutes of video, is available for download.

    The program is basically broken down into three steps: importing your videos, designing a layout for the menus and the actual converting and burning of the DVD so you can play it on any DVD player, as the ones people have on their cars now from the Top9Rated’s selection of such products.

    Importing videos is relatively easy, I purposely downloaded three different formats from Gametrailers (MP4, QuickTime and WMV) to test out the compatibility and there was no problem importing them. During this step you can also select the start and end time of each video as well as choosing between standard 4:3 or the wide screen 16:9. You also have the option to create a DVD menu, which is the second step. Skipping the second step will lead directly to converting the videos to VOB format and the actual burning of the DVD.

    At the bottom is where you can choose whether you want to burn a DVD 5 with 4300mb or dual layer DVD9 with 8500mb.

    The second step is where you let your creativity out. You can pick one of the premade backgrounds or you can import your own image as the background. You have one background for the root menu and one for each video’s chapter menu. It is also interesting to point out that WinX DVD Author helps you divide each video into chapters so you don’t have to worry about chopping them into chapters yourself.

    Nothing is complete without background music, WinX DVD Author lets you add background music, again one for the root menu and one for each video’s chapter menu.

    When you are satisfied with the layout we can move on to the final step.

    The last step is just as straight forward as the previous two steps. Here is where you will specify the output folder (where the converted VOB files are located), the output format (NTSC and PAL) and the encoder engine which allows you to pick from best video quality but slower converting speed, normal video quality and standard converting speed to low video quality with high converting speed.

    When ready, press the big Start button and you will be prompted to insert a blank DVD into your DVD burner (if there isn’t one already). You have the option to burn it right away, or save the VOB files in the output folder and burn it to a DVD by going back to the main screen and select DVD Disc Burner where you can select the entire DVD output folder or individual VOB files for burning.

    WinX DVD Author Functions & Features (From their web site):

    Convert and burn

    • Supports almost all video formats to DVD
    • High quality and super fast (With high quality and fastest converting engine inside)
    • With DVD Video disc burner inside and support most of DVD burn device
    • Support batch conversion

     

    Author DVD

    • Author DVD Menu & Chapter Menu
    • Support to add background music & picture to DVD menu
    • Support 16:9 widescreen and 4:3 standard TV, NTSC and PAL video
    • Support subtitle to DVD
    • Support AC3 Audio

     

    Other features:

    • Support all current hardware interfaces (IDE/SCSI/USB/1394/SATA)
    • Support disc media: DVD+/-R, DVD+/- RW, DVD DL+R, DVD DL+/-RW, etc
    • Support multilingual: English, French, Chinese, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, etc

    Overall I think the program does what it intends to do without the frustration. But I do believe they can improve things here and there such as having one standard window instead of popping different ones with different sizes, having more Windows-like menus like File, Edit, Options etc across the top would make the program even more user friendly and finally being able to save the projects would be nice as well.
